    You are all right on about this. Why brave doing stories that could get you sued? As Trump would say, Sad! Very sad!

    it would do the new york times a lot of good if it (and its writers and editors) had a quick look at a mirror … whether they would ever realize that the so-called political correctness, as they practice it, equals censorship, pure and simple, remains an open question … their fear-mongering would be funny – if only it was close to the truth … and, btw, everyone should be responsible for what s/he publishes … if they fear lawsuits, why do they fear? because they would lose? why would they lose if they told the truth and nothing but?
